TORONTO (Reuters) – The one year postponement of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics could open the door for convicted drug cheats to compete for medals, and is something that will need to addressed, United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) chief Travis Tygart told Reuters on Tuesday.

“This was an issue raised on a call of National Anti-doping Agencies from 21 countries today,” Tygart said. “It is one of many complex issues that will have to be thought through and determined now that the Games have been postponed.”
